Fresh Install - Recommended Server Roles

Post by sbbots »

I am installing Veeam 7 Standard on a fresh install of Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 x64. Question; Are there any recommended server roles that I should installl that would help Veeam functionality or performance? This server is strictly for Veeam and Veeam only.

Thank you for any suggestions.

No specific recommendations regarding server roles (unless you're going to use this server as Hyper-V offhost proxy). Everything that's required is listed under system requirements in either release notes or user guide. Thanks.

I already know what is required, but thought I would ask if any role was possibly recommended (e.g. not required but may have some benefit). I do not use Hyper-V, so I will not install any roles. Thank you for the reply.

Our setup brings all prerequisites along, so plain vanilla clean OS install is sufficient (and is actually recommended). Thanks!

My 2 cents:

If you're going to use PowerShell snap-in extensively, I would recommend enabling feature called Windows PowerShell Integrated Scripting Environment (ISE). It's not enabled by default, but should your experience with PS more comfortable.

Thanks.
